Just a little north of Bangkok is Ratchada, the bustling city’s thriving new business and entertainment district.
Half metropolitan, half suburban, and with a dash of charm thrown into the mix, it boasts an out-of-town feel without being too dizzying to explore. Activities abound on the streets of Ratchada by day, as people from all walks of life go about daily life, from suits heading off to sign the next big deal to street stalls peddling authentic Thai snacks.
But by night, the district transforms into a different world.
Ratchada is home to arguably the best night market in the Thai capital, the vividly colorful Train Market, known to locals as the Rot Fai Night Market. Rummaging through its many stalls will likely land you some unique items such as vintage clothes, homewares, and home-deco-worthy antique items.
Always expanding to accommodate every sort of traveler, the district is also home to an array of accommodation, from boutique to concept, to bed and breakfast and of course, luxury. And one that is sure to afford you the true taste of Bangkok is none other than Swissotel Bangkok Ratchada.
